    If you're looking for isolation then Fron Haul cottage is the place for you. It provides comfortable accommodation, there is lots of countryside (including wild places) to explore and the owners are very hospitable. The Alpaca are always interesting. There is a mile long rough track to the cottage which the owners and Sykes are very open about. The weather was dry throughout our stay so we cannot comment on how the track is in wet conditions although the owner said it was passable. Don't think it would be a problem if you have 4x4 and an adventurous spirit! We booked through Booking.com who made no mention of this track which makes us wonder whether we would want to use this company again or recommend it to friends.

The property

This is a converted farm building set on Fronhaul Farm in the South Wales countryside, near the market town of Whitland.

The scenic, remote location and cosy interior makes this cottage a great spot for couples or friends to come and enjoy a relaxing break together.

The cottage is situated a mile from the public road down a rough country track that winds along the side of the valley under a canopy of trees offering occasional glimpses of the river.

Be greeted immediately with the alluring living dining room, boasting rustic quarry tiled flooring, comfortable leather sofas and a fantastic electric wooburner-effect stove to keep you warm whilst watching the TV.

The Cottage comes with the added luxury of a delightful conservatory with cosy bucket seats and some incredible views across the countryside beyond.

The ground floor also offers a spacious, fresh double bedroom as well as a well-appointed and stylish galley kitchen and a crisp shower room, uplifted by a velux window.

The traditional narrow, steep staircase takes you up to a charming open bedroom with characterful wooden beams and a double bed.

This cottage comes with a lovely sitting area out to the front where you can enjoy a nice drink, alternatively there is over 65 acres of farmland that you can wander which lead to numerous other paths including the popular Landsker Trail, as well as fishing rights in the nearby river.

Whitland is a brilliant market town a short drive away which offers shops and places to eat and drink.

Further afield Narberth and Carmarthen are popular destinations with plenty to see and do.

The Cottage at Fronhaul is a homely cottage in a wonderfully idyllic location.

About the location

WHITLAND

Narberth 6.6 miles; Carmarthen 15 miles.

Whitland is a small market town lying on the River Tâf, 15 miles from Carmarthen. The small centre has an array of little shops, pubs, a train station, eating places and the Hywel Dda Gardens and Interpretive Centre, with 6 delightful gardens to explore. Nearby, a visit to the beautiful town of Narberth, with its colourful Georgian houses, plentiful shops, bars, bistros and restaurants will not disappoint. A trip to Carmarthen offers more shops, restaurants, tea rooms, a cinema and the pretty steam railway ride or a visit to the mysterious Merlin's Centre. The walkers in your party will be spoilt for choice with the Preseli Hills nearby and the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path easily reached nearby. The sandy beaches of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire beckon for lazy days in summer and brisk walks in winter while the Heatherton Park, the wonderful Welsh Zoo as seen on TV, Folly Farm and many more are perfect for family fun days out. With so much to see and do, one visit to this great location just may not be enough.
